Beginning next March, the Department of Veterans Affairs will offer standardized electronic forms. The VA hopes to streamline and speed up the claim filing process with the use of the electronic forms. In the past, veterans could file claims and appeals on any piece of paper – often causing delay and confusion. VA Secretary Robert McDonald hopes the electronic forms will make the process easier for veterans and ensure the most accurate decision on the claim. The VA is also standardizing the intent-to-file form allowing veterans or their survivors one year from filing the intent-to-file form to gather documentation and evidence for the claim.
